HOLY TIBER BRINGS UP THE 13TH WINNER FOR THE YEAR
Holy Tiber did herself proud yesterday by taking her career stats to 2 wins from 3 starts. She rallied under a power-pack ride from James Doyle up the stand side rail in conditions that would have been far from suitable for her.
What impresses me about her is that she has not yet had her ideal conditions, I believe she would be best suited with some cover and a better surface. She is from a family that has developed well with age, a step up in trip in nursery company could well be on the cards for her.
The 2 year olds have been a credit to us so far this season, none more so than James Garfield and Another Batt who both ran in the Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot last week.
James Garfield is pencilled in for a Maiden next week, whereas Another Batt, all being well, will head to Windsor for a Novice race. Along with these, we have an exciting bunch of unraced two year olds which include Graffitista who runs tonight at Newmarket. She has improved week by week and I expect her to run a nice race before being very competitive on her second and third starts.
Mewtow, Mankind and Slipstream are three horses to keep an eye on as the season progresses.
